DIY LBD TO SWIMSUIT

For those who attended my shop's last Anniversary Fashion Show, you'll probably remember this swimsuit I wore in Boracay was worn as LBD by my friend-slash-Huenique Ex-Brand Ambassador, Nic Magquilat.


Now, the question is: How did I turn this LBD into a swimsuit?

MATERIALS YOU NEED:

♔Old LBD
♔Stretchable tulle
♔Scissors
♔Washable pen
♔Pins
♔Thread and Needle
♔Seam ripper
♔Thread cutter
♔Measuring tape
♔Ruler


HOW TO:


STEP 1. Since the dress you're reinventing is yours, no need to measure your body size. Trace your desired design for your swimsuit right away.

STEP 2. Fold the dress in half, make sure to pin it to keep it in position. 

STEP 3. Cut the traced lines. Make an allowance! Remain some fabric for the crotch. Then, remove the excess fabric.

STEP 4. Pin the stretchable tulle to the parts of the dress you cut to add some style. Then, sew it together even the crotch. You can put other fabric instead of a tulle or none at all, depending on your taste.

STEP 5. Measure the length of your thigh to crotch for your hemline. 

STEP 6. Get some excess fabric to make a hemline. Again, leave an allowance.

STEP 7. Fold the hemline and put some pins. Sew the edges then reverse it to make thread invisible.

STEP 8. Pin the bottom part of hemline and the bottom part of the swimsuit together.

STEP 9. Flip it and sew it with the wrong-side-out.

STEP 10. Wear it like it's brand new!




As you noticed, I made a classic swimsuit for myself.I still want to spread the Lord's message to His princesses. He said in 1 Timothy 2:9: "I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves." Remember, you can still be fab at the beach without showing too much. Show less and be the best!
